NOURISH

AN INDEPENDENT, PRINT MAGAZINE ABOUT FOOD, ENTERTAINING & BUILDING COMMUNITY

PULL UP A CHAIR. TAKE A TASTE. COME JOIN US. LIFE IS SO ENDLESSLY DELICIOUS. [ RUTH REICHL ]

NOURISH offers compelling stories, inspiring visuals, and access to interesting restaurants, chefs, homecooks, purveyors, doers + makers. 

NOURISH is first and foremost, a community.

A community that believes deeply in the power of food to equalize, connect, chart new territory and honor tradition.

Through the words and visuals, and gatherings we host, you'll come to know how deeply satisfying it is to eat jam made from fruit that would've otherwise gone to waste, or eat in a restaurant whose passion for food and hospitality came from the generations before them, or go out of your way to support a café that a couple took honorable risks to open.

These are stories about humanity and community, told through food. And you will begin to more deeply recognize your own humanity and place in community through this lens.

Food is love.
Food is connection.
Food is joy.
Food is life.

We're thrilled you're here.

Nourish has had the privilege of sitting down with a number of interesting, influential chefs  and food-drivers in the local, national and international community, and though you'll have to pick up a full copy in which their interviews run to read them in entirety, we want to share here some powerful things they had to say.   


MARCUS SAMUELSSON

Everyone is a cook. We walk. We talk. We cook. People choose to opt in or opt out of cooking. The thing is - cooking with a spiritual compass. Depending on how your day looks, your week looks, your family structure, we can go together to the store and purchase trout. Cook it for ourselves, make extra to deliver to an elder, make fish soup with the bones. It's about living right by food. 

GABRIELLE HAMILTON

I love when you know you're telling it exactly as it is. When you're afloat. It's unconflicted. Unequivocal. It's very valuable. I wish for everyone that they could and would allow themselves it. 

ANIEDRA NICHOLS

The one book everyone should read? The Righteous Pork Chop by Nicolette Hahn Niman.

JOHNNY IUZZINI

I work in the service industry and that means it's our job to cater to people. Their wants and needs. I learned a lesson of humanity and respect from one of my greatest mentors, Daniel Boulud. Treat people right, respect them no matter their position, and learn patience.

SIMON PURVIS

Best advice you ever got? It was at my second job after college - the Pompadour Restaurant at Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh. I was younger and moving slow compared to the others, so the lead cook pulled me into the walk-in and talked about the need to move faster. It worked, as it created a desire to be faster and more productive every day I went to work. 

PEOPLE who LOVE to EAT, are ALWAYS the BEST PEOPLE.
